Start-ups to showcase at major digital event

Digital start-up companies encouraged to showcase new products and services at CultureTECH event

Showcasing your business

Thirty of Northern Ireland’s top start-up companies from across TV, gaming, music technology and mobile and web applications will be on show at the region’s largest digital technology event later this month.

The showcase, which will take place as part of the CultureTECH festival in Derry-Londonderry at the end of August, will be the largest gathering of technology and media start-ups in Northern Ireland this year.

The showcasing companies will be chosen through a combination of open application and direct invitation from the festival organisers.

Any company utilising technology is free to apply, provided the product or service they want to showcase was launched in 2012 or will launch in the coming months. Each selected company will also be given free VIP passes to the festival, allowing them to network with seasoned industry professionals, potential investors and the media.

The showcase is being supported by Invest Northern Ireland (NI) as part of their wider involvement in the festival. Brian Dolaghan Director – Business Services Invest NI added: “There is no doubt that the last few years have seen an explosion in the number of new start-up companies coming through in areas like gaming and web applications.

“We would strongly urge anyone in the digital or media sectors with a new project to promote to put themselves forward. Even just attending the event will be a tremendousopportunity to learn from and network with a truly impressive line-up of speakers.”
